On Resurrection Sunday obviously, Christ's resurrection is prominent & celebrated joyfully. It is a day of remembering the cost of salvation and rejoicing that God the Father would pay the price of his Son for such a broken world. But what about the other days of the year? What does it look like to focus upon the resurrection of our Savior on a Monday in March or a busy summer Saturday? If Christ's resurrection gives us victory over death through the Holy Spirit, what does it look to live in that resurrection power daily?
When I was younger, I would lurk around the Christmas tree, waiting for my mother to turn her back, so I could shake the brightly colored packages under its boughs. Even now as a college senior, I can't help but wake up earlier than usual to see what was stuffed in my stocking or to rip the paper off a present to reveal the book I have been patiently waiting to read.
